Last year, my husband and I found ourselves staring down a couple of empty stockings on Christmas Eve. The entire holiday season seemed to come to us by surprise, and, in a move that would barre us from winning any parents-of-the-year awards, we just forgot about stuffing our children’s stockings. That was the year everyone woke up to clementines and brand new toothbrushes.
So this holiday, to overshadow Santa‘s major misstep, I’m dedicated to finding a few special items to stuff our stockings this year. I sat down to find a sleigh-full of small surprises that are sure to delight every little and loved one on our gift-giving lists. Need some inspiration? I’m sharing my finds with you below—all budget-friendly picks you can shop online.
